we have tried this. we have tried both approaches. the approach that governor romney's talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. we ended up moving from surplus to deficits. and it all culminated in the worst financial crisis since the great depression. bill clinton troyed the approach i am talking about. we created 23 million newions, we went from deficit to surplus and businesses did very well. so in some ways, we have some data on which approach is more like lie to create jobs and opportunity for americans. and i believe that the economy works best when middle-class families are getting tax breaks so they have money in their pockets and those of us who have done extraordinarily well because of this magnificent country that we live in, that we can afford to do a little bit more thotomake sure we are want blowing up the deficit. >> reporter: the president began , -- >> i think i get the last word. let me make this comment -- [overlapping dialogue] >> jim: let -- >> i am not in favor of a $5 trillion
was a frown. that is what romney is talking about. >> dana: the other thing, his message to the debate is return america to position of economic strength and growth. if you talk foreign policy, the economic policy matters because you want a strong growing america to become the lender not be the borrower. we're not on that path. romney not saying he could get it done and get us on a better path to be a stronger world player in the future. >> bob: what he said about iran, i would make the sanctions tougher. move the mediterranean fleet up near iran and the pacific fleet near iran, both have been done. >> dana: i thought you said he didn't give specifics. >> bob: he didn't. >> dana: those sound specific. >> bob: he said i'd move the fleets but they're already there. >> dana: we could apply more pressure to friends elsewhere who are giving iran cover.imbere would handle it. the criticism president obama and the administration refusing to meet with netanyahu and impaired relations with israel. here is romney's take. >> put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and friends and
the obama campaign is saying and what the romney campaign is not. >> a favorite talking point of the obama campaign is mitt romney's economic proposals would simply reinstate the tax cut and deregulation policy that led to the 2008 financial meltdown. two things should be said about this claim. one is it's gone unanswered by the romney camp and the second is it's utterly invalid. the tax cut put in place under president bush in 2001 and 2003 cannot be blamed for the mortgage market collapse that triggered the great recession. in fact, they can be credited with helping the economy out of the recession of 2001, 2002, and with helping overcome the economic damage from hurricane katrina. by the way, that expansion, and the tax revenue it produced were sufficient to drive down the federal budget deficit for 2005 through 2007. this despite massive war spending. as for deregulation, president obama himself said former president bush put more regulations in place than he has at the same time frame. it is true that there is one bit of deregulation regularly blamed by the liberal economists for help
romney leads 49, 48, another tie in the margin of error. with the country still talking about mitt romney's victory the democratic party has decided to go into full attack mode. the strategy seems to be very simple. call mitt romney a liar. >> plenty of people have pointed out what a liar mitt romney is and was last night. i mean if he was talking -- if he was speaking last night, he was lying. >> look, mitt romney had a good night but, you know, even, you know, a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. one good night is not going to erase a year of mitt romney's extreme positions. >> bill: that was pretty vicious, was it not? does the dnc really believe that kind of rhetoric will help the president? does it believe independent voters respond positively to that? i don't think they will. in the realm of politics often misleading statements. "time" magazine story this week runs down statements by both campaigns that are either false or outright propaganda. so for the democrats to call mitt romney a liar is foolish and destructive to their guy, president obama, because the obama campai
talked about his five boys, that was racist because it was romney suddenly calling obama boy. >> sean: how desperate are they? they seem they're freaking out, panic and desperate? >> they are. let's understand something, as every day comes in, the polls get worse, we go from dishonest -- we started with untruthful, now dishonest, and now lying. god knows what it will be by the end of this week. the point is -- let me just say this. this is the biggest debate victory probably since 1980. >> sean: it is. >> in terms of a single debate, in terms of the margin but more importantly what it did for romney was, the number of people it gave them a chance to see. the problem with the lying strategy, the people that watch "60 minutes," within five days they would have put up ads promoting their debate victory. the fact is it was big. it helped romney a lot. we went from 30%, almost doubling the 53% among uncommitted voters that he cared about people, his favorability -- i've been waiting for more polls. we finally got pew. some of the polls are slow on this. the thing i find is the election is
for romney. everybody's talking about how badly obama did in the debate. i'm talking about how great romney did. i think he explained his positions. he explained why taxing the rich won't work, because it's taxing the small businesses that create jobs. he's talked about the medicare issue. i think that this was a big win for romney. i think ryan will hammer it home. >> sean: they're going to sequester for six days biden? he can't come out in public? they're going to try to force his brain full of information? i just don't see that working. >> well, sean, maybe they take him off the trail for six days so he doesn't mess it up. >> sean: well, maybe mess it up -- >> there was no debate, they should still sequester him for six days. >> sean: probably for the rest of the campaign. you know, i want to go to your book for one second, because we don't have a lot of time tonight, but it's out in bookstores now. this has been something that a lot of conservatives have been concerned about. that is the growing influence and reliance on the united nations, worldwide taxes, which hillary mentioned just,
to correct you in the missed of the crisis, governor romney, you are talking about this again tonight, talked about the weakness, talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that really appropriate, rights in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own statement that they had put out earlier in the day in cairo. so we had the same position. it is never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and starting when the mullas in iran were attacking their people. we should not have called the assad a reformer when he was turning guns on his own people. we should always stand up for peace, democracy and individual rights. we should not be imposing devastating defense cuts because what that does, when we equivocate on our values -- >> here -- >> it makes us more weak. it projects weakness. when we look weak, our adversaries are more willing to -- >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarky-- >> reporter: why's th
the same thing with my dad this weekend. >>> talk politics. president obama mitt romney entering the home stretch for the presidential race. the big one will be foreign policy. >> in a few hours mitt romney will layout the vision for how the world should view america. doug luzader is live in washington with more. >> election day four weeks from tomorrow. it is getting very very close. 4 points from four key swing states. in virginia it is getting a lot of attention today. mitt romney will be in is virginia delivering major foreign policy talks. strike while the iron is hot especially in the wake of the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya last month. romney is trying to build a post debate momentum. >> i am convince the you had the chance to hear his answers or nonanswers. now of course days later we are hearing his excuses and next january we will be watching him leave the white house for the last time. >> president obama made a return appearance to california last night. not because that state is at play but because hollywood has heavy hitters with deep pockets. >> we come a long way.
here. talk coming out all of the questions was about ann romney and michelle obama. we're not talking a lot about them. ann romney will be hosting "good morning america" tomorrow. what factors, do you think if any these two women may bring to the election and what we might see over the next four weeks? are they a factor? >> look the general argument out there that, spouses of candidates don't tend to win them elections. they can be a net draw back if they don't do a good job, if they plub or become a center of attention but neither women have been doing that what they have both proven they're very effective campaigners for their husbands an shoring up their messages. in that regard they're adding some ballast to both. campaigns. in particular reaching out to women voters we were just talking to. they're mostly there as sort of side by side to keep their husband's message out there, rather than necessarily winning the campaign on their own. jenna: said before in context today. good if they're not winning the campaign on their own because they're not the ones running for president, righ
republicans. mitt romney is a strong leader who stood up and talked against the talking point, one of the favorite ones that steve israel has, how republicans want to sendions overseas. mitt romney said i have been in business 40 years, vinever seen a tax advantage. that's an advantage to us when you have experience at the top of the ticket of building jobs, jobs creation and a chance to turn this country around. i believe in paul ryan and mitt romney. and i think steve israel will find out that republicans hold the house quite soundly, defeating democrats. >> shannon: we will find out, one month from today. thank you for your time today. >> you bet. >> reporter: >> shannon: pastors across the country are sounding off on moral, social and political issues today, part of pulpit freedom sunday. it could be coming to a church near you. we will talk about it and wais at stake, right after the break. [ thunder crashes ] [ female announcer ] some people like to pretend a flood could never happen to them. and that their homeowners insurance protects them. [ thunder crashes ] it doesn't. s
before it is for voters to know. we would be talking about mitt romney's loose interpretation of the facts regardless of what the people thought of the pet's performance. his own campaign walked back what romney said about covering people with preexisting conditions in the healthcare plan. >> marjorie wasn't the president lying when he repeatedly said mitt romney would raise taxes five trillion dollars. it will not be near five trillion wasn't that a lie. >> no it is not a lie because romney will not talk about the loop holes. he refuses to walk through the math. paul ryan said i don't have time to deal with that. and voters want the facts and they don't want the spin and verse, they want somebody to show up and walk them through the math. you can see him take a variety of the positions and you don't see paul ryan do it. >> you are following the talking points. that they are big fact liar: amelia don't you think that accounts back fire with the president. he's been so likeable . that could take a tollwith the gutter ball. >> the republicans went through seven stages of grief.
. that is a difference. we talk about it before. romney two-point lead. margin of error is tied. first time in a year, real clear politic average, he has the lead in the average of recent polls. what about this? the panel, jonah goldberg, from national review online. kirsten powers for daily beast. syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. charles, today's developments and well, big bird. >> democrats are actually running an ad showing big bird and contracting it with the bad guys on wall street. >> let's just play it. might as well. >> i'm just a prop here. >> bret: right. you're teeing it up. play it. >> bernie madoff, ken lay, dennis kezlowsky, criminals, glut top of greed, evil genius who tower over them. one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird. big bird. big bird. >> it's me, big bird. >> big, yellow, menace to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about. it's "sesame street." >> bret: charles? >> this could be the worst ad i've ever seen. i make an appeal to people in chicago. run this ad every night over and over again, spend all of your money. and t
of these debates, the first debate with the president, he talked for 37 minutes, governor romney and told 28 myths. >> eric: running out of time. last word, cal. >> well, if you're look for honesty in politics, it's like looking for a virgin at a house of ill repute. you got plenty of lies on both sides. you got fundraising all over the place. i like to say i'm from washington, d.c. originally where the only politicians with convictions are in prison. >> that's one thing we have in common. i'm from dc, too. >> eric: we'll wait for tuesday night. thank you both. arthel? >> arthel: that was very entertaining. okay. american made -- very good, too. cal had good lines there. american made products, american made products regaining footing overseas. but after suffering the greatest recession since world war two, is the world ready to let down its guard? he he >> eric: they fought for freedom overseas. now they have a new mission here at home. nearly every member of newark, new jersey's latest class of firefighters is a military vet. that's a first there. since world war ii. anna kooiman is live with th
these distractions. and, paul ryan talked about the fact that we're going to get, that he and mitt romney will get 12 million americans back to work. he laid out very specific ideas how they will reform the tax code. how they will reduce spending. we saw vice president biden last night. they have no plans for spending. he misled on benghazi. they have no way to create jobs and talk about how they're going to get americans back to work. he said that numbers are going in the right direction. we created less jobs in the past three months than we did the month before. jon: andrea saul, from the ryan campaign. romney-ryan campaign i should say. thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. and we gave both sides equal time. thank you. >> thank you. jenna: a warning from our nation's defense secretary about a growing threat. what he says are military our military need to do before it's too late >> greater danger facing us in cyberspace goes beyond crime and it goes beyond harrassment. a cyberattack perpetrated by nation-states or violent extremist groups could be as destructive as the terrorist attack on 9/11.
seems to be romney's favor. >> let's talk specifically about battleground states, wisconsin, pennsylvania, new hampshire and michigan were all leading in obama and now considered toss-ups. let's start with wisconsin. what is happening there? >> all those four states as you said were switched by real clear politics. in wisconsin that is where paul ryan is from, mitt romney's running mate. that is only a 2-point race in wisconsin. you have to remember, this is state where back in june there was recall election against scott walker. he won the race. he demoralized the democrats. a lot of activists were saying because president obama didn't come strong in favor of the democratic candidate, it demoralized a lot of democrats there. turnout could be very important. if the democratic turnout is not high, you might see mitt romney win that state. >> patti ann: meanwhile, florida where he is romney is enjoying a 2% advantage. we have david plouffe saying, we are going to get the senior citizens and hispanics. we are going to get florida? >> it's a crucial state for romney to win, one
-to-head again. that is different kind of format. the town hall format. president and mitt romney will talk to individual voters asking questions, that may be a better format for the president. jon: but it does seem that states like ohio and nevada are getting tighter, and you know, with, well the election is four weeks from tomorrow. if that momentum holds for the romney team, it could really be a surprising turn around come election day? >> it certainly could. of course the romney campaign and republican national committee did a big turnout drive this past weekend. they have been doing a lot of that. we've seen it, we've seen it more from democrats. they have been exposing some of their organizational advantages all summer long. we're just now seeing how much the romney campaign is doing in some of these states. you're right, it absolutely could turn around. until we see romney leading in a lot of these averages in a lot of these states the president still has the edge. jon: one of the questions is about voter enthusiasm. one poll says republican enthusiasm, especially post-debate, is muc
governor romney in ohio from early talking about success and alluding to how much fun he had on the first presidential debate. now, a couple of days away from the next one and i understand he will be off the trail preparing for that. what else? >> reporter: that's right. talking about the debate last week has been one of his biggest rallying cries in front of big crowds ever since it happened. seems to have been a big huge momentum boost for mr. romney. he did debate prep with his senior strategist and rob portman today. tomorrow he will be doing a lot of work with his team. they recognize because this s a town hall meeting and they will take questions from the public it is an opportunity for them to really connect with real voters as opposed to taking questions from the press. mr. romney down on monday as well for additional debate prep. a sign of just how important this is for him. they consider is a pivotal opportunity and to make the point that because the president had such a poor review and by his own admission don't have a good performance in the last debate the onus is on the pres
. this is not the recovery we all wanted but we're on the road. for mitt romney it does take away one of talking points he has been very big on, number of consecutive months that the number has been at 8% or above, that line is gone from his speech. short term positives are there for president obama but long term you look at the historical numbers in terms of unemployment in presidential reelection years and depth of the political challenges are great here. >> heather: i'll ask you more about historically in a moment but the numbers have been called into question. there is actually a huge disconnect between the modest of new jobs report and significant decrease in the unemployment rate. jack welch, he went to as far to suggest that the numbers may be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward.
to uncovering the truth. but some are saying it is a cover up and want answers now. we'll talk to peter king. take two. obama and gov mitt romney get for a rematch. the pressure is on both candidates to find an edge. >> i am uma. live from the nation's capt cament starts right now. uma pemmaraju. >> over the next few days, president obama and governor romney will get deep in the debate prep for tuesday. obama looks to make up for the last debate performance romney looks to build on his momentum. karl cameron is traveling with the romney campaign and has more. >> we are live on the romney press bus in central ohio on the way to fort smith where governor romney will have a rally in a while. early this morning, he was taking part in the debate prep and he spent time sparring with his shadow boxers rob portman who plays the role of president obama . paul ryan is campaigning in ohio. big crowd and was aggressively going after the president on china policy. foreign policy will be a big part of the last debate. today paul ryan going after the president for not cracking down on china for the alleged
: that heightens the pressure on mitt romney for the second debate? >>guest: when you talk about unprecedented, this first debate was an inflection point. what made it amazing from statistics you see fluctuation in polling data when the undecided is high like in the presidential primary. you have undecided at 20 percent or 25 percent and people do not know the candidates yet. here the undecided was seven. in high single digits. so you saw a big swing not only in some of the swing states but in the national polls, a dramatic swing, with a low undecided. that is what makes this an unprecedented move. >>neil: it must speak to the possibility, the possibility, that the president's support or a good many other supporters are not as strong or in his column as he thinks. given an appealing alternate they could and indeed will switch. what do you think? >>guest: that is the key. an aping alternate. right now, the national voter pie has, the approval rating of president obama at 47 percent or 48 percent is close enough to make a difference especially in the key states. what mitt romney has done is he h
on the economy. >> shep: you were talking about policy. what is it that governor romney says he would do differently? >> well, there haven't been a lot of specifics. there are some differences, however. for instance, mr. romney has said he will move to impose sanctions on iraq -- iran with the international community much more aggressively, as well as additional pressure from the united states. he argues that he will enable the rebels in syria to arm themselves more effectively, to go up against the iran-backed regime of assad who has been crushing rebels and killing civilians. and mr. romney said he will link relations with egypt, now led by pot morsi of the muslim brotherhood, what has been described virulent anti-west and says our relationship will be based on trade, something mr. romney said should be much more aggressively policed and pursued, free trade and fairer trade with china. those really the only major distinctions emphasized today and outlined in terms of specifics from mr. romney. shep? >> shep: carl cameron live in virginia. as i mentioned, president obama's team was resp
friends at "says me street," would be talked about so were. you need that state if you are romney? >>guest: you do. it is 18 electoral votes and there is no other way he can get to 270 needed to win without ohio. very important state. that is why he has three events there tomorrow. >>shepard: real clear politics does an average of all the polls. there has been a lot made about polls recently and the enormous swing especially coming to women, but what is the thinking of you folks at real clear politics? >>guest: the debate helped mitt romney. what is important to note, two weeks ago mitt romney did a big three-stop tour of ohio for several days and that didn't move the polls in his direction in ohio. after the debate, he might now have some new traction. without trying to get a change in the direction of the polls in ohio he will have trouble. they want to build off of this traction they have from the debate and move it forward in ohio. >>shepard: there is another big debate, the day after tomorrow, the vice presidential debate. what kind of impact could that have given who the candidates a
with never missing opinions. he talks about america and another four years with obama. we look at how it is run the 2012 campaign how it is conducting foreign policy how it paralyzed economic growth and solutions being offered by the romney, ryan ticket and do they have the country's answers? because the donald has been less than silent on the abysmal obama record he like so many on the right have been subjected to ridicule by the president and his team out of chicago. >> can the president do more to show leadership on being transparent with regard to documents, records, his own background that's another underlying theme the campaigns are going at. >> are you talking about donald trump? >> i know he has been taking flack lately but no one is happier no one is prouder to put this birth certificate record to rest than the doll nald. >> looking to continue to bring up is college records. >> the donald trump question which i think he is the one who brings it up the most. >> last year at this time on this very weak end we finally delivered justice to one of the world's most notorious indiv
's essentially a tie right now. the data is so close. but romney was behind by a field goal, now he's kicked a field goal and we have a tie race going into the final weeks. >> what voter groups have moved in the last three weeks? are you talking about independents, are you talking about specific demographic groups? who has moved? >> well, one group that hasn't moved are the strong partisans. democrats and republicans who turn out are going to vote for their own nominee. the key statistic to watch with the partisans is enthusiasm. and the presidential debate clearly help the republican enthusiasm and hurt the democratic enthusiasm. on the other hand, the group to watch as far as the ballot test goes are the independents because they are much less lock into their particular pref presence at -- preference at the moment. your own poll showed that in virginia, according to wall street journal poll, independents moved a net seven points toward romney after the debate, and in ohio independents moved a net twelve points toward romney after the debate. those are big swings among independents, and it'
